First Year Induction
Scoil Chriost Ri are proud to run the Belonging + Program to support first year students in their transition from primary to secondary school. This transition and transfer induction program orientates students to the expectations and operation of their new school, introduces them to the learning skills needed at second level and supports the social, emotional and personal aspects of transition.
To this end, all first year classrooms are furnished with a teaching resource known as ‘The Banner’, which outlines the key areas of effective learning. It is envisioned that these areas be embedded in the teaching and learning of all subjects across the curriculum in first year. Such a resource furnishes students with the necessary language to talk about their learning and in doing so, informs them about how they learn and what is needed to fulfil their potential.
